JEEP HISTORY
So I've always been a big fan of jeeps,
but I've been a bigger fan of prerunners
and have been building a ranger prerunner
snce just after highschool. It is still
not complete. Over time betweeen work and
play my ranger just sits. So it is almost
complete and my dad buys an 81 CJ7 with a
little 2.5 chevy 4cyl motor. It was bone
stock when he got it, and I used to drive
it when I wanted to go to the snow, it did
excellent and it impressed me and my
friends and a few fully modified jeepers
on the snowy covered mountain. So I
started to look for a jeep after that. My
dad has since don a full overhaul on his
cj7 . He bought an old 1985 CJ7 that had
been rolled a few times but it would make
a great donar for parts. He swapped out
the 4.2l motor with a 5 speed trans and a
dana 300 with tha twin stick convertion
done on it. I believe it is a 4 to 1
ratio. He also did a spring over
convertion and put 4.11s front and rear
with the jeep easy lockers. It has a warn
winch that was on the 85 cj as well. So
now his jeep is ready to go. Ok so now
back to me, I sold my dirt bike to buy a
truck ( my truck got repoed when I lost my
job) and I found another rig that I have
always wanted. A 1971 GMC jimmy. The guy
was only asking $3500 for it. It had a
6" lift and it was sitting on 15x10
eagle 058s, which had 37x13.50 interco
m16s on them. I took the bait hook line
and sinker. It was a 3 hour drive from
the truck to my house so while it was this
guys daily driver I figured it wouldnt be
an issue. I was wrong 2 hours into the
drive the torque converter goes out. I
had to leave my new baby on the side of
the road in the ghetto on the 5 freeway.
I got it home the next day without
incedent. So for the next 6 months I
dumped every last penny I had into this
truck and it kept giving me new problems.
So I decided to try to sell it. That
didnt work either. So as a last ditch
effort I put it up for trade on another
forum that I often visit called
Dezertrangers.com And about 2 weeks in I
got a potential trade. It was exactly
what I was looking for A 1997 jeep
wrangler. It had a 3 1/4" rough
country lift sitting on 33" tires.
The only problem that he thought I might
have with the jeep was the color, it is a
blueish purple. They called it
the"Angry blueberry". I love
the color and we agreed to trade. I got
it home and started driving it right away.
So now I have a jeep. The only mods that
I have done so far is I put my sirius
radio in it with new speakers and I put a
k&n replacment filter in and I
switched the rims from my ranger to the
jeep so I now have black steel wheels. Im
in the process of replacing the tires with
new tires. I went down to a 31x1050x15
and just bought 2 new front tires they are
a GT radial adventuros I think . They are
a mudder tire. My plans are to get the
rubicon express 5.5 long arm kit and put
in 4.56 gears with lockers and run
33" tires but that is way into the
future for now I'm happy with what I have.
